Done, thanks for the suggestion.  Feel free the improve the
descriptions of the branches.

Agreed, Tassilo, what do you think?

Actually, I'd like to see this feature merged into master at some
point.  The last time I tested it, the new TeX-parse-TeX was able to
catch some more errors (and some less) than the old one.
`TeX-file-line-error' is great, but ideally AUCTeX should be able to
catch all errors by itself.
